The Numbers Game: Z-Ro & Mindless Behavior

Not really too much to report this week in terms of album sales. Tony Bennett‘s Duets II album made him the oldest living person to ever top the Billboard 200.

Also, Mindless Behavior dropped their debut album, #1 Girl, which landed at #7. This is officially the second time I’ve ever heard of Mindless Behavior with the first being when radio host Charlamagne recently asked them some “inappropriate questions” (Did I mention that they were a R&B boy band?). *Shrugs*

Z-Ro was basically the lone Hip-Hop debut this week to make the Top 200 with his album Meth. From what I’ve heard so far, it’s a pretty good (Review?). It lands at #85.

Now next week is gonna be a little more crowded since we’ll have releases from artist like J. Cole, Phonte, 9th Wonder, & Evidence.

Sidenote: Did J. Cole really sell 115,000 albums in one day?
